Department Overview

At Joplin Schools, we believe quality communication district-wide is critical to the success of our schools, our programs, and the students we serve. Research consistently shows that students do better when parents and the community are involved. A successful communication and community engagement program – one that focuses on listening and sharing - is essential for building trust and creating partnerships with parents and the community. Joplin Schools is committed to open, honest, and ongoing communication with both internal and public audiences using a variety of communication tools. The Communications Department works to facilitate ongoing communication and community partnerships.
The Communications Department includes the following areas:
  • District Communications & Publications
  • District and School Websites
  • Social Media Sites
  • Perception Research & Data Management
  • Media Relations
  • Community Engagement Events and Activities
  • Joplin Schools Alumni (through the Joplin Schools Foundation)
